you kissed my fingertips
one by one
and promised you’d never leave
you kissed my forehead
as you reached out
and tentatively caressed my
but you wound a noose
of pretty roses
around my neck while i slept,
and when morning came, you had vanished.
when morning came,
The morning crept over my face
My dream-swept fingers reaching for yours
My heart bloomed in verdant promises made in the night’s passions.
Last night you lovingly caressed my soul
We shared a true embrace that promised eternity’s bliss
Each weighted breath, sigh of release, and gasp of elation shared as one.
But my eyes opened and you’d left me once again
My heart’s song turned to deep aching tears of deafeningly silent doubt
I question, I ask, I ponder ever more so each time I think of you
Will you stay with me this next time
Or will I drown in your arms again.
